Big news from Comic-Con 2012 on the BBC series MERLIN (which also airs in American on Syfy) as it enters its fifth season.
While speaking to the press, Angel Coulby who plays Queen Guinevere Pendragon on the series (and is also making her first Comic-Con appearance), says MERLIN Season 5 is getting much darker in the new season.
“It feels much more adult,” says Coulby. “I think they’ve pushed the boundaries each time with each series and it’s gotten darker and darker. We know a huge amount of our audience is adults and we can be more ambitious with the darker side so it’s interesting to play.”
Other revelations include the return of Mordred and more bad stuff from Morgana (Katie McGrath) is on its way. Plus there will be more between Arthur (Bradley James), Merlin (Colin Morgan), Gwen and Morgan according to McGrath.
“What’s great about this season, it relies more on the four of us to carry the story — it’s not so much a villain of the week,” says McGrath. “They have one direct continuation of Season 4. It’s almost like an American series of 22 episodes. It’s a vote of confidence that they’re trusted the four of us to carry the series and give us these great stories.”
Also returning this season in a guest stint is Anthony Head as King Uther, who died in Season 4.
“Uther returns in a very unexpected way and returns in Arthur’s life where he’s missing his father and he needs some advice and in a moment of weakness, and he is able to contact Uther,” reveals co-creator and executive producer Johnny Capps.
